Elite Travel Group’s marketing and events manager Wendy Albutt has been recognised for 30 years’ service at Elite Travel Group.
Albutt, the consortium’s longest-serving member of staff, received flowers, a certificate and some spending money towards a holiday to mark reaching the 30 year mark.
She started at Elite, then called the Midconsort Travel Group, as secretary.
She said: “I was 16 and straight out of school. It was just me and the chief executive Tony Walker and we were based in a small office above a travel agency member called Reliance Travel in Hodge Hill in Birmingham. There were just two of us so I was a jack of all trades!”
Over the years Albutt has worked in different roles for a variety of chief executives including Sue Foxall, Chartles Eftichiou and Neil Basnett. Basnett stood down in April and has yet to be replaced.
She added: “I love my job and I love the people – I have made so many friends here over the years and a lot of agents have known me since I was 16 when I first started.”
Albutt is pictured receiving her flowers from Elite chairman Wayne Darrock.
